About Phil Strahl

Phil Strahl is the author of a number of short stories mainly situated in the gloomy field of weird fiction, with fragments of science fiction scattered towards the horizon. He publishes those few stories he deems worthy enough to share with prudent and open-minded readers and is grateful for each review or line of feedback.

Among his admired influences are the usual suspects, H. P. Lovecraft and E. A. Poe, but also the philosophic Soviet sci-fi parables by the Strugatsky Brothers.

Being a native Austrian he lives and writes in Salzburg where he enjoys to visit the preppy city and trips to the surrounding dark forests alike.

Review by: Natalia Voronova on July 26, 2013 : star star star star star
Feels like the short story is just a glimpse of a whole monumental novel with its profoundly developing plot where all characters from main to minor have their own purpose and assignment to the novel and are reasonably described in an interesting for the readers way. Really good work.

A well written short tale.

Quite liked the suprise of using a common mythical god over a fantasy god that would need creating within a fantasy world. I think the suprise though should be unvieled nearer the end of which god the Gray King slumbers for.
